The Government of Canada is committed to providing greater economic opportunities to Indigenous Peoples through federal procurement. To support economic reconciliation, novel approaches for engaging with First Nations, Inuit and Métis organizations and businesses are essential to build relationships and increase their successful participation in federal procurement processes.

This fifth event in the series brings together federal procurement practitioners and representatives from Indigenous businesses and non-profit organizations to discuss and showcase how innovation is supporting Indigenous participation through procurement processes, and share their experiences and current challenges.

Participants will learn about innovative principles and methods to support the participation of Indigenous communities and businesses in the federal procurement process and how they apply to their own work.
